Short name electricty that Union of Chambers of Turkish Engineers and Architects Chamber of Mechanical Engineers Rize Province Representative of the President of the text Cutler Rize's 50-year process in Turkey would be a strategic base, underlined a major road will driven by the commissioning of the logistics center in this figure. Emphasizing that the railroad between Samsun and Batumi must be established in order to ensure the economic growth of Rize, President Bıçakçı said: “Rize is the outbound gate of the Black Sea. Rize process in the next 50 years will be one of Turkey's strategic epicenter of the city is no longer possible competition with the city government investment. It is the city's own dynamics that will attract investment, create employment, and create a peaceful and happy city. Nowadays; Logistics sector comes to the fore in the world. Rize will go a long way in logistics with the introduction of the logistics center. As a result of the commissioning of this center, it is important that we establish connections between production and consumption centers, that is, the port and back regions.

In order to ensure the economic growth of Rize, the Fast Freight and Passenger Train Line between Samsun and Batumi must be established. 4. While the industrial revolution is under way, Rize also has to increase our work to this level. level.

As known; 12 Plan Sheet, Legend, Plan Provisions, Plan Explanation Report, Plan Change Rationale Report) 644 No. 7 of the Decree on the Organization and Duties of the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization. in accordance with the Authorization of the Ministry Authority on the date of 03.04.2017.

Samsun-Sarp railway connection was established within the scope of the plan and the connection of the region to Batumi-Samsun and the inner regions was continued. With this railway line, a comfortable and effective development area is defined especially for freight transportation, while port-railway road networks are integrated. This railway line, which was established on the coastline, was established with the inner regions with Tirebolu-Gümüşhane-Bayburt, Of-Çaykara-Bayburt-Erzurum, Trabzon Central District (Ortahisar) - Erzincan lines. On the other hand, two-way railway crossing will be provided in Ordu-Giresun and Trabzon-Rize axles. However, what will be done here is not yet clear.

The construction of the Railway Project only as Erzincan, Gümüşhane and Trabzon is unfair to the provinces between Samsun and Sarp. Railway transportation is important for ports to gain importance in regional development. For this reason, it is necessary to hold the tender in a way to cover between Samsun and Sarp. It should not be considered that a high speed train to Trabzon will not include Rize and Artvin after Trabzon. Besides, it is the closest steep border gate to the Turkish republics and Russia. Why we insist that railway and high speed train come to our city; We demand that the transportation made by road is made by rail and fast train from our city. Connecting the train road to the southeast with a steep connection will increase the importance of the Ovit tunnel.

With the high-speed train coming to our city; alternative, more comfortable and economical travel opportunity. The Trabzon-Tirebolu-Harşit-Erzincan road, which is still under construction, is connected to Giresun from west to Rize from the east, as well as it is connected to the GAP region and Tbilisi over Kars to the Caucasus-Central Asia through transportation of goods to our country. -It causes our exports to Russia and our revenues from international transit trade services to increase. As the high-speed train reaches Trabzon and from there to our city and then to Batumi, it will bring a great relief in traffic as it will also reduce the density on the highway. In addition, it will reduce the accidents to a minimum, and the road will be damaged by heavy tonnage vehicles. Among the new breakthroughs of TCDD is the high speed train project. High speed train is not an accelerated train, but it operates with an infrastructure suitable for the system. The main function of this project is to revise the existing train route and make it suitable for high speed train transportation. ” said. (gazeteriz to)
